Typically, these keynotes will save the best till last or at least later on the conference, and it’s likely there will be some general Apple-related housekeeping news up first, before we get into the big stuff.

You can watch the official Apple Event stream below.

What to expect at Apple Event 2019

A foldable iPhone?

The tagline for this year’s keynote is ‘by innovation only’, but just how much innovation this entails remains to be seen.

One thing that would certainly be ‘innovative’ (although only for Apple, not the industry at large) would be a foldable iPhone, which has been rumored ever since Samsung released their ‘Fold’ last year. 

Reputable Apple insider, Ming-Chi Kuo, via YourStory, has suggested that an “all-new form factor design” will kick off the next generation of iPhone.

5G on iPhone

5G is certainly the way of the future, and so it would make sense that Apple is lining this up for their new devices. However, according to Kuo, Apple’s own 5G chip will not be ready yet, and so they would have to rely on a chip from Qualcomm to enable 5G.

Apple Arcade and TV

There will almost certainly be new details on Apple’s gaming streaming service, Arcade, as well as updates about what is coming next for Apple TV. Arcade is set to launch this year, and is confirmed to have over 100 exclusive games.

The Apple Arcade could be their answer to Google’s Stadia.

iOS 13

In addition to new devices, Apple often reveals their upcoming operating systems too, and iOS 13 has already been confirmed, slated as the fastest iOS system to date.

We’re sure to get a much more detailed look at what is planned for the new iOS in 2019 keynote.

StreamElements has announced the 20 recipients of its $100,000 Creator Diversity fund, providing creators of underrepresented groups on Twitch with professional livestreaming services.

These streamers are up-and-coming broadcasters who are fighting for their place in the uber-competitive landscape of livestreaming, and who face even harsher competition because of their protected characteristics.

The Creator Diversity Fund will provide them “a wide range of support from StreamElements which includes graphics, production, and mentorship.”

Additionally, SteelSeries is onboard to provide all recipients with Arctis 1 Wireless Gaming Headsets.

StreamElements said they were inspired to start the fund, due to an acknowledgment that these creators, in underrepresented groups, face extra challenges in the livestreaming space.

The creators were selected due to the type of content they were producing, their dedication to livestreaming, and their own insights provided when they applied.

The fund hopes to be “a way to help elevate their presence and voice in an ecosystem where discovery and access to information is an issue.”

Marc, who goes by Teknikalx on Twitch, told us “I applied for the fund because I thought it would be beneficial for my channel to receive additional support to give the channel a more professional look vs what I have now. Also to bring to light that programs like this exist and if a channel such as mine can receive support in this manner, other channels can too.”

Teknikalx boasts over 5,000 followers on Twitch, but says that having the support of StreamElements ‘Dream Team’ will “give a boost to my channel in the extra visibility to my content. I truly believe that the access to doors that would otherwise be closed will open, with their support to show that my content is worth not only checking out but supporting.”

Fellow streamer StreetGrind, who streams everything from Fall Guys to Horizon Zero Dawn, said the support from the Creator Diversity fund will take his “content and brand to the next level in overall aesthetics as well as consistency.”

“I’m hoping to use this support to increase my discoverability on who I am and what my brand is about. Improving every day one step at a time and helping others along the way,” he explained. “We stand stronger together instead of individually.”

Another recipient, GoofyWise, similarly hopes the support will push his stream further and provide a better viewing experience. “Opportunities like these are rare especially those targeted to people who look like me.”

“I plan to use this opportunity to take my channel to the next level by giving my stream an increased level of professionalism that will attract viewers from all around,” he told Dexerto. “Not to mention the added confidence boost from having a higher quality look and feel. Look good, feel good!”

The support will include guidance on growing their brand, securing sponsorships, merchandising, and all other facets of growing and maintaining an audience.

StreamElements is one of the leading third-party services used by countless streamers to manage their donations, overlays, alerts and more while they are broadcasting.

“Livestreaming is not an easy profession and it can be even more daunting for members of underrepresented groups,” said Doron Nir, CEO, StreamElements. “With the Creator Diversity Fund, our goal is to provide those invaluable industry insights on top of improving all aspects of their channels.”

Each of the 20 recipients will have an “account manager”, with 24/7 assistance, and provided a selection of “in-game overlays, alerts, emotes, transitions, sub badges, headers, tipping pages, info panels, and logos,” customized for their channel.
